PREFACE 



This work was undertaken through a desire of some 
of the family to have a record preserved, as perfect 
as it can be obtained, of the emigration to, and 
the settlement of their ancestors in this country ; 
and also of the situation and connedlion of their descendants 
at the present time. While there are some families through- 
out this country either bearing this same name or being 
descendants therefrom, and which are not included in 
this work, it must be understood that we have herein 
traced merely the descendants of Johan Bernhard Reber, 
who emigrated to this country in 1738. The records con- 
taining the long list of early emigrants give the names 
of four other persons by the name of Reber * having landed 
in this country, from whom doubtless spring a great many 
of these families. 

For the omissions and errors that may be found in this 
work we hope to be excused, as the former were unavoidable 
through lack of information, and the latter must be expedled 
considering the resources, which in many instances depended 
on memory only. 

These records date from the first emigrant to this country 
by the name of Reber, so far as we know, and continues 
their genealogy to the present time, keeping principally to 
the name in question. Although the descendants out of 



the name are as much of the family and as nearly allied, 
yet to trace them all through the generations would involve 
too large a work for our present plan or for the satisfacftion 
of our readers. 

In arranging the heads of families, we have g^ven the 
date of birth whenever known, and also the location. In 
most instances where no address is mentioned there has 
been no change of residence from that of the parents. 

In presenting this genealogy the writer desires to 
acknowledge his obligations to Rev. Thomas H. Krick, 
Thomas Reber, Joel B. Bertolet, Mrs. Mary E. Runyon, 
David W. Pellman, James C. Reber, and the others who 
have aided by their researches, in furnishing materials for 
the work. m. b. r.

GENEALOGY OF THE REBER FAMILY 



FIRST GENERATION 

The idea of preparing a genealogy of the Reber family 
was probably suggested in finding the original passport of 
Johannes Reber still preserved, who was for a long time 
believed to be the first one of the large family of Rebers 
who emigrated to this country. This passport shows that 
he came from lyangenselbold, Germany, which is situated in 
Kreiz Hanau, Regierungsbezirk Cassel, Konigsreich, Prussia. 
While visiting in that part of the country, in 1882, Mr. James 
T. Reber, of Reading, Pa., found recorded in the old church 
book of the Evangelical Church (Rev. Frederick Hufnagel, 
Pastor), the names of four brothers, (i) Johan Bernhard • 
Reber, (2) Hans Reber, (3) Johan Conrad Reber, and (4) 
Michael Reber. This church book dates back to the year 
1563, so that it might be possible to obtain the ancestors of 
these four brothers since the i6th century. However, we 
have been satisfied to make a record only from the earliest 
emigrant to this country. 

I . Johan Bernhard Reber, the first of these brothers, 
is recorded in this same book as having one son, (5) Johannes 
Reber, who was married Feb. 8, 1736, to Johanna Magdalena, 
daughter of Conrad Hahn. From this union two sons were 
bom ; (6) Johannes (Dec. 16, 1736), and (7) lyUdwig 
Friedrich August (Sept. 11, 1740). The Pennsylvania 
Archives, containing the names of 30,000 early emigrants, 
mention the arrival of John Bernhart Reber, from Rotterdam 
(Holland), on the "Snow Two Sisters," landing in Phila- 
delphia, and qualifying Sept, 9, 1738, by swearing allegiance 
to Great Britain. We can learn of nothing pertaining to his 
whereabouts or life after his arrival in this country. The 
passport, however, of the son is still intact and a photograph 
of same is shown on accompanying page. 



GENEALOGY OF THE REBER FAMILY 



SECOND GENERATION 

5. Johannes Reber, whose dale of birth is unknown, 
was married Feb. 8, 1736, to Johanna Magdalena Hahn. They 
had two sons born in Germany, Johannes and Ivudwig Fried- 
rich August. According to his passport, he left his native 
country for America April 23, 1742, bringing his family with 
him, although it is known that the second son, Lud'vi;.r, uied 
on board the ship. Being a member of William Penn's 
colony, his first object was to find a desirable location. 
Having seledled some acres of land about 6 miles west of 
Reading, in Eower Heidelberg Township, at the big bend of 
the Tulpehocken, in a beautiful though desolate valley, known 
afterwards as the ' ' Blue Marsh, ' ' he moved thither with his 
wife and son, built himself a home, which served the double 
purpose of shelter and a protection against the Indians and 
wild animals, his only neighbors. This quaint old building, 
with its large square fire-place in the centre, is still standing 
on the farm now owned by Mr. Henry Shofer, Reading, Pa. 
We find recorded in the Pennsylvania Archives that John 
Reber was naturalized May 13, 1768, and also that he, like 
many others of the early settlers, was concerned in numerous 
disputes regarding the rightful ownership of their land. 
During the time that he resided in this locality he was blessed 
with an increase to his family of three sons which were named 
Thomas, Valentine and Peter. Their five children were :
